Maine has waited too long for bold action to build a strong and sustainable economy. Augusta and Washington aren’t getting it done. That’s why Opportunity Maine Campaign has joined with a large and diverse coalition to launch the Clean Energy Jobs Initiative, which will provide the good paying jobs and energy independence that our state desperately needs.
Citizens all over the state are gathering signatures to double the amount of renewable energy we produce in Maine over the next decade and to support energy efficiency projects that will cut electricity costs. On Election Day alone, over 400 volunteers collected 28,000 signatures to put this initiative on the 2012 ballot!
If you have already signed the petition let us know why on our Facebook page. If you want to sign the petition let us know in the comments section!
We’re close, but we need your help to get over the finish line. Every dollar you can contribute gets us another signature closer to our goal of 70,000, gets the signatures to town and city clerks across the state, and gets them turned in to the Secretary of State in January.
Anything you can give — $10, $25, $50 or $100 — will be greatly appreciated and will fuel the success of this campaign. You can take the extra step of contributing $10 a month from now through next November to help make sure we have the resources to win this campaign. Will you help?
Let’s keep this moving ahead. Let’s win this thing.
P.S. Collecting 1 signature at a time, raising $1 at a time – that’s how regular Mainers can work together to win this campaign for good jobs and energy independence. Will you help?
